I am Sampler

DETUNE Ltd - makers of iMS-20, iYM2151, and I am Synth - have released a new Universal sampler, I am Sampler. This is based off the I am Synth design, offering a really slick and simple interface.

I'll be honest though, I got really bored with I am Synth in a hurry. I like the idea though! Synths and Samplers don't need to be complicated all the time.

Here's a demo from DETUNE showing off the new app.

Thanks to iDesignSound for finding this!

Korg Monotron vs. WerkBench!

YouTuber treasurecharger has uploaded a great video of WerkBench in action. Korg's little Monotron is making big sounds when run into Werkbench's new pitch/scale settings. It gets a little chaotic in the last half, but over-all I liked it!

G-Stomper for Android

I haven't posted any Android apps before, but not for lack of interest. I'd love to see some competition in the tablet space! G-Stomper is the first app to really warrant a post though, and thanks to Matrixsynth for bringing it to my attention.

This drum machine looks like a minimalist-Electribe. It might not be quite as pretty as Korg's iElectribe, but I really like the way all of the pertinent controls are nice big sliders.

Meteor Multitrack Recorder updates Dropbox support

One of the most impressive DAWs on iOS just got support for the new Dropbox SDK, with integrated login. A handy feature for any app that has lots of stuff you'd want to get on to your computer, without the use of iTunes' file-sharing or jailbreaks!

I haven't had a chance to play with this. Have any of you? It seems pretty feature rich, beyond the simple recorder suggested by the name. The inclusion of virtual instruments and racks of effects makes this a full-on DAW.

4Pockets Audio have produced a bunch of video tutorials, available on their website. Embedded below is their introductory video that gets into the features.

ChordMapMIDI for iPhone

A new VirtualMIDI app has arrived for iPhone. ChordMapMIDI offers a simple screen for quickly trying out different chord progressions, on anything you're sending MIDI at... well, anything that is polyphonic!

Although the graphic design is appalling, the actual layout looks well thought out. It could be a lot of fun to plug this into one of the Guitarish Animoog patches, and then bring up the Music Theory Cheat Sheet on your computer.

For more information, and equally unappealing graphics, visit the developer's site where they've got lots more and a PDF manual.

On a total tangent: while researching this I came across an interesting article by Anthony over on the Ableton Cookbook, Music Theory for Electronic Music? Don't waste your time. I'm in total agreement, and this is one of the reasons I try to avoid theory in ECPM. It seemed like the more I learned about theory the more stale my music got. Intervals and Chords are about all you really need to know, and with apps like this you don't even need to know those either!
